Articular Ligaments: Articular ligaments are fibrous cords of connective tissue that attach bones to each other and hold together the many types of joints in the body. Articular ligaments include those found in the upper extremities, shoulder, lower extremities, pelvis, head, spinal column, pelvis and thorax. Articular ligaments are strong and also have a small amount of elasticity because their connective tissues consist of both collagen and elastic fibers. Articular ligaments stabilize joints and allow movement in only specific directions, which depend on the individual joint.
Conditions that can directly or indirectly afflict the articular ligaments include strains, sprains, ligament tears, arthritis, dislocations, and trauma.
